FX has released a teaser trailer for a documentary following Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s takeover of Wrexham AFC.

The Hollywood actors became owners of the North Wales club in November last year, when the Wrexham Supporters Trust voted overwhelmingly in favour of the move.

The pair immediately invested £2m in the club and their involvement also led to a shirt sponsorship deal with TikTok.

The Executive Producers are McElhenney and Reynolds, plus Nick Frenkel and John Henion and from Boardwalk Pictures: Andrew Fried, Dane Lillegard, Jordan Wynn and Sarina Roma.
